How do i change an EX port back to an E port on 7800 router

The only way I could figure out how to change an EX port (once configured) back to an E port was clear the routers config. Is there a command to change EX back to E ports.

 

The same for VEX ports connecting two routers. At present I have two routers with an online tunnel all working fine. One router has been configured with a VEX port. The other side has a VE port which allows the tunnel to come up.

 

If I wanted to allow these to merge into a single backbone fabric what command can I use to change VEX to VE

Two options, I believe...

 

portcfgvexport XX –a 2 –f YY (XX = desired port) (YY= Fabric ID)

 

or

 

portCfgDefault slot/port
